Windows "Microsoft doesn't understand that people travel around the world, and are hugely sentimental about things they've paid for. Here's a list of some services that are affected by Windows Live ID billing region locks and what you will lose if you move countries." It ain't pretty.

Yes, I was using live mesh to sync my music collection across my computers, and no other system was free and reliable (except for writing my own rsync scripts).

Anyways, Microsoft seems to be consolidating their services, and decided to cut something people actually use. Fortunately they offered a free 25GB skydrive for older users, and it makes up for now (my collection is around ~15GB).
